Man's Card

Recently it was my brothers birthday and here is the card I sent him.  I think he will have a special attachment to this card as soon as he opens it, as this was him, fly fishing in Patagonia, Chile.
I once again took the original  photo and made a copy of it with my scanner/printer and cut it to attach to the card front.
I have this stamp called "moments" and have used it recently on several cards I've posted on my blog. I think it is a nice masculine stamp that adds interest to a man's card front.
I also used gauge and put some green chalk ink on it with my daubers to add color to the white gauge..  I reminds me allot of a fishing net to the background? 
I hope that your day is a pleasant and crafty day!

Double Stamping Card #3

I've posted three weeks in a row now my cards with double stamping. This is the last week of my posts double stamping cards.  I truly enjoyed doing this technique. But soon it's off to something else for you.  The next few weeks I hope to get into a little more of the Christmas spirit. But before I do next week I'll be back with another masculine mans card for you.   Hope your week is a crafty one?
Thanks for stopping by. I always enjoy having you stop by my place.  So why not leave a comment to let me know you stopped?  Please don't be shy....

Double Stamping Card #2

As promised... here is another card I made using the double stamping technique as I did last week.  Yes...I used the same folder as my last posted card and used the stamp"En Francais" on my background here but no cheese cloth stamp this time.  This time I just stamped the french script writing in white embossing powder and applied green and brown over the background with my ink daubers.
I then used blue ink and stamped my flowered stamp.  One thing I forgot to mention in my last post was after stamping my flowered stamp  with water based ink  I lightly sprayed water over the stamp.  This gave it a little watered effect to on the paper.   Unfortunately, the picture does not pick up the look well.  Do notice the stamp then does not cover over the white writing.  I like that effect.
In my scrap paper box I found some blue printed paper and used it in the background and used a lighter green paper making a double frame around my double stamped paper.  Adding a bow and silver square dots just adds a touch more.  I'm the ready to put a computer generated verse to the inside of this card as I choose for the occasion, when needed.
Hope you like it as well as last weeks card?  It was great having you stop by.  Have a wonderful week! 
Blessings to all from Leanne

Double Stamping Card #1 ...

A couple weeks ago I decided to play around using some double stamping to my cards background. I thought some old fashion stamping would add interest to my background rather than using a embossed background with a embossing folder, as I so often do.  I was inspired by seeing others do stamp resisting. However, I didn't really do this here but found that using my daubers and ink gave it a similar look.   So...I began with a stamp from Stampin' Up called En Francais and stamped it first with white embossing ink.  I made sure to only stamp a portion of the stamp so it looked kind of unevenly stamped and only to the left side of my card.  I then used my stamp from Rubber Necker Stamps called  Cheese Cloth and stamped over it in bright green ink. I so love this Cheese Cloth Stamp... it's a favorite of mine.  I then used my stamp that looks like weeds and flowers (sorry..I do not know the name or manufacture of this stamp) coloring it with my Tombo Pens with different colors to the flowered weed, stems and leaves. 

I also took brown ink and used my daubers inking brown to the background thus giving it more texture and color. 
I was pleased to show you this particular card after finishing as, I was pleased with the results.  In the next few weeks I hope to share a few more cards I've done by doing a similar background. I've had a great  deal of fun doing them.  As you know I like doing a variety of different card ideas and try not to stay on one particular style of card for a long time.
So...thanks for stopping and I do hope you leave me a comment as to whether you liked this or not? I also like to know you were here?  Why not give me a shout out here?
